Famous quotes containing the words frame and/or tube:

    We are not permitted to choose the frame of our destiny. But what we put into it is ours.
    Dag Hammarskjöld (1905–1961)

    The last best hope of earth, two trillion dollars in debt, is spinning out of control, and all we can do is stare at a flickering cathode-ray tube as Ollie “answers” questions on TV while the press, resolutely irrelevant as ever, asks politicians if they have committed adultery. From V-J Day 1945 to this has been, my fellow countrymen, a perfect nightmare.
    Gore Vidal (b. 1925)
